The Circus with Jack and Seth
The school field looked lovely in the afternoon sunshine as we bimbled toward the Happy Circus. We enjoyed the various stalls put on by the school, Kate won a bottle of wine and Bear two bottles of beer on the tombola stall.

The show was well attended.

Shaun Lee showed us his skills as an escapologist before the interval, a man and a lady from the audience checking the padlocks and chains, assisted by his wife Pippa. Later, they came back and Pippa folded herself in a box and Shaun showed two tubes into the cabinet and pulled the bottom half making Pippa into a zig-zag.
